How do you knit seam edges?
Align the bound-off edges of each piece with the Right Sides facing you. Starting at one side slide your needle under both legs of the first knit stitch, just underneath the bound-off edge. Then repeat the same motion on the first stitch on the mirroring side. Work back and forth in this manner along the seam.
How many rows and stitches make a square?
Start by casting on 60 stitches and work every row in knit stitch. Keep on going, knitting every row until you have a square – this will be about 120-130 rows. It should be approximately 12 inches by 12 inches but don’t worry if it’s a bit bigger or smaller – we will still be able to use it.
